Katie’s yoga practice began in 2002 and while she loved how relaxed and connected to the world she felt after practicing, she wondered what else she could learn from being on the yoga mat. In 2013, she earned her teaching certification with Awakened School of Life in Indonesia and is currently registered with Yoga Alliance at the RYT 200 level. Katie joined the MBS community in 2013 as a class assistant at Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute and since then has completed Level 1 and 2 of Opening Yoga. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with BA degrees in Journalism and Studies in Cinema & Media Culture. Katie has worked in non-profit advancement and development for over ten years with organizations like the Minnesota Medical Foundation, Room to Read and the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota. She is incredibly grateful to have the opportunity combine her passions for making yoga accessible to everyone and non-profit development.
